MILLISEARCH: A Search for Millilensing in BATSE GRB Data

Abstract: The millisearch.for code was used to generate a new search for the gravitational lens effects of a significant cosmological density of supermassive compact objects (SCOs) on gamma-ray bursts. No signal attributable to millilensing was found. We inspected the timing data of 774 BATSE-triggered GRBs for evidence of millilensing: repeated peaks similar in light-curve shape and spectra. Our null detection leads us to conclude that, in all candidate universes simulated, OmegaSCO < 0.1 is favored for 105 < MSCO/Modot < 109, while in some universes and mass ranges the density limits are as much as 10 times lower. Therefore, a cosmologically significant population of SCOs near globular cluster mass neither came out of the primordial universe, nor condensed at recombination.

Changed site URL from http://asterisk.apod.com/download/file.php?id=3341 to
http://asterisk.apod.com/library/ASCL/m ... h.for.zip; change necessitated by retirement of old ASCL site.
